Chapter 33
New Classic

My eyes scrunched up when I sensed daylight which slipped past through the small opening from the curtains. Still feeling exhausted, I rolled on the bed and turned my back from the light. Even with just that minimal movement made me feel the soreness of my thighs.

I ignored the pain to go back to sleep. Inangat ko rin hanggang sa aking leeg ang comforter dahil sa lamig. Just when I was about to finally fall asleep, the door creaked like it was slowly being opened.

Napakunot pa ang aking noo at inisip kung sino ang pumasok sa aking kuwarto. I thought it was just Auntie Divina. However, the moment I smelled Ike's familiar scent, my eyes shot wide open. Doon ko lamang napagtanto na wala ako sa bahay.

Memories from last night barged into my mind. Heat went up to my cheeks. I firmly closed my eyes again, not knowing how to face Ike.

I could remember everything. I couldn't help but feel embarrassed as I was the one who initiated those deep kisses which turned us into a slave of pleasure.

It was our first day being in a relationship, and yet we spent our first night doing things I never imagined I would do before marriage. Hindi ko maiwasang mapaisip kung ano na ang tingin sa akin ni Ike. He tried to stop twice while I didn't even try.

Nonetheless, even if we acted out of impulse and got swept away by our emotions, I don't regret what happened to us. Even if it's wrong in the eyes of other people, it made me feel happy, loved, and reassured.

My train of thoughts was cut off when I felt the other side of the bed sank. Ike moved closer to me. His fingers began to comb my hair softly like he was putting me to sleep.

Napakagat ako sa aking ibabang labi. I got conscious because he was obviously watching me while I pretended to be asleep.

"Aleena..." His voice was slightly hoarse when he called out my name and stopped combing my hair. "I know you're tired and you still want to sleep but you should eat your breakfast now. It's past nine already."

I didn't reply nor dare open my eyes. Kahit na alam kong halata niya nang gising ako ay nanatili pa rin akong nakapikit.

"Baby, please wake up now..."

Napanguso upang pigilan ang kilig na nararamdaman. Talagang ginamit na niya ang endearment na 'yon sa akin. Wala na akong nagawa kung hindi ang unti-unting idilat ang aking mga mata. I didn't turn to him though. Diretso ang tingin ko sa pader. Kahit na gusto kong bumangon at tumakbo sa banyo upang magtago ay hindi ko magawa.

I couldn't get up because I wasn't wearing anything at all. I wasn't sure where Ike threw my clothes away.

"You should get yourself ready first," Ike told me as he moved away. "I prepared clean clothes for you. It's here on the couch."

Hindi ko malingon ang tinutukoy ni Ike dahil hindi ko siya kayang tingnan. Nanatili akong nakatitig lamang sa kawalan.

"I'll wait for you at the dining area," he said. "You can take your time."

Ike left the room after his reminders. Sinuyod ko ng buong tingin ang silid upang makasiguradong talagang umalis na siya. I let out a deep sigh of relief when I didn't see him around.

Takip-takip ang aking katawan gamit ang comforter, bumangon na ako. Nasa kabilang gawi ng kuwarto ang sofa kung nasaan ang damit na sinasabi ni Ike. It was a new set of clothes. It wasn't mine. Mukhang kabibili lang din dahil mayroon pang tag.

I didn't see my own clothes around the room. Siguro ay itinabi niya na 'yon. Tatanungin ko na lang siguro siya pagkatapos kong maligo.

I took a shower inside the bedroom's bathroom. Medyo nagulat pa ako dahil may nakahandang bagong bili na shampoo at sabon na pambabae. Aside from preparing new clothes, he also bought me new toiletries to use. Mayroon ding hindi gamit na tuwalya at sipilyo.
